Order Description
Their eyes were watching god&by Zora Neale Hurston

What do identify as Janie’s SPINE& – the one thing that seems to motivate this character (wether it is conscious or not).
Some of you mentioned freedom, independence, to define love, to experience love,
etc as her spine –
Do you think there can be others – more hidden?
(This is your interpretation. She may have multiple spines, but it is the one you are choosing to argue for.)
In the end (or in moments throughout) is she successful or not in actualizing her spine? In other words, what is the novel saying about her quest for (freedom, love, independence, etc) – does she achieve it?
